NOW ACCEPTED TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCE CITATION INDEX

African Archaeological Review publishes articles on African archaeology, highlighting the contributions of the region as they relate to key global issues. Important topics include the emergence of modern humans, earliest manifestations of human culture, and the origins of African plant and animal domesticates.

Contributions feature timely continental and subcontinental studies covering cultural continuities and discontinuities; interregional interactions; biocultural evolution; cultural dynamics and ecology; the role of cultural materials in politics and ideology; the application of ethnohistorical, textual, and ethnoarchaeological data in archaeological interpretation; conservation; management of cultural heritage, information technology, and public archaeology.

Papers present new field data from key excavation sites or localities aimed at understanding interregional processes, major cultural changes, and transitions in Africa's past, and Africa's place in world archaeology.
